+++TRY THE ONLINE DEMO, HAVE A LOOK AT THE GAME!+++
Gather the 3 eggs required and go back to the base, within 25 blocks destroyed.
TIP: Guido jump strength sucks, so take in consideration he can only jump one block, plan properly your path, don’t get stuck!
Up – jump
Right – goes right
Left – goes left
(hold) Down – headbutt down
(hold) A – if Guido is placed at the left or the right of a block , he will smash it with his head!
R – Restart the stage
AlessandroLino, says about the prototype:
´´Overall, nice graphics, nice sounds, nice game, nice everything, go make more levels now. Pleeeeease’’
Headbutt Guido – a retro 8 bit puzzle platform game.
Guido is a struggling New Yorker looking for a chance to change his life. After another fight at a bar in Downtown, (fight were he ‘’headbutted’’ a couple of punks whose he doesn’t even remember their faces), he decides that he can somehow use his head to do something more constructive than just smash people skulls at night.
After walking around in the city, and getting his job application rejected here and there, his attention got blown by an announcement on tv: a private space company is looking for people with special skills to be send to ´´some mining missions on space´´.
Guido liked the idea to travel (he never left Brooklyn in his life) and decided to apply for the job…
About the game.
Headbutt Guido is a simple, yet innovative retro style puzzle platformer. Your mission is to dig in each asteroid, get the required amount of alien eggs and go back to the base. Sounds simple, right? What makes things harder for you and Guido is that his jump skills are not the best on space, and that S.R.A.D (Space Regulations Asteroids Digging) allows you to only dig a limited amount of meters each day.
The risk to get stuck in the asteroid is high, think twice before digging!
The current stage of the game.
What you tried in the prototype is just 10% of what I have ready. There are interactions that are already coded and ready to be used later during the game. I want to make a good 8bit style game, suitable for everyone and fun to play and with many stages and situations to keep you entertained.
Why are you asking for my money?
As you probably noticed during the demo , what I have used to develop the prototype is a free limited version of a nice game engine called Construct2.
My minimum goal is to gather up 200 USD in order to buy the full license of the game engine and set an online a website.
I know is a small project, but I am working on it alone, graphics, sound and programming on just a single man shoulder. I want to deliver something cool to play, but as well something I can develop alone and finish.
Depending of the amount of money I will gather, I will include co-op gameplay, and port the game to other platforms, I will keep you posted through updates on this page.
Thank you for your attention!
